The subject of the partnership is a worldwide OEM agreement for the entire dataglobal product suite and the acquisition of certain rights to dataglobal’s data classification platform.
HEILBRONN/SYDNEY, March 21, 2018 – dataglobal, a leading provider of content services, digital workplace and archiving platforms, announces the completion of a strategic partnership with Australian company, Covata. Covata is a leading provider of data protection and collaboration software solutions.
At the center of dataglobal’s solutions is a sophisticated data classification platform that enables real-time analysis of metadata and content across all types of data. It has the platform connectors required for the most significant content service platforms as well as connectors to data, regardless of whether it is stored on-premises, hosted privately and or in public cloud environments.
As a result of this partnership, Covata will become a worldwide OEM partner for the complete dataglobal content services and archiving platform, complementing its own data-centric security platform.
dataglobal is also granting Covata intellectual property rights to the advanced data classification platform for use in its data security platform and secure business enablement solutions. Covata will then have its own version of this core IP.
In the future, both companies will cooperate in the area of sales, especially in Europe, where they will work together on the development of a distribution channel.
In addition, dataglobal will provide Covata with training, platform integration and product support over an extended period of time.
